    One thought on “The Spider”

    1. 3.44 A buddy read with my UF loving assassins at BBB This is book number 10 in the series, but it realy is of a prequel to the series, giving us a glimpse of Gin as a young assassin still in training We see her getting ready for one of her first solo jobs, at a time when Fletcher was still monitoring and mentoring her heavily And we get to see the young, impulsive, hotheaded Gin, who, as most young adults do, thought she knows it all, she can deal with it all, and she can overcome every obstacl [...]

    2. Buddy Read with my UF junkies at Buddies Books BaublesOn a good day I struggle with the main character, Gin As UF heroines go she really isn t my cup of tea, I still haven t been able to put an exact finger on why shrugs but really if it wasn t for the cool girl posse and Steven that I ve been reading this with I might have given up on Gin a while ago So if I m already having a hard time with 30 year old Gin can you imagine how well I did with an entire book set in a flashback to 20 year old Gin [...]

    3. 2.5 stars Spoilers I have to admit, the only reason I m reading the new Gin Elemental Assassin books is for completion s sake, ever since the whole Owen personality transplant my love for the series has all but vanished I wasn t expecting to like The Spider but it was actually better than I thought it d be Even though I enjoyed it than the last few books though that s not saying much since I hated the last few , I still had a number of issues with it The whole book was basically just a flashbac [...]

    4. 06 07 2016 Buddy read with my awesome friends over at BBB, because we love UF May our Wednesday BRs never stop Happy anniversary In this book we see Gin a decade earlier, before she became the most feared assassin of Ashland.Fletcher has received a job which Gin wants He s been training her for seven years, and she s had a few solo jobs, but this one would be her first big one And Gin feels very confident, thinking she s than ready to go at it on her own Add the fact that a very handsome guy is [...]

    5. This is a story that starts almost at the beginning, well, at least at the early start of The Spider Unfortunately, what we get is a younger Gin learning a very hard lesson.To be honest, I wasn t sure if I was interested in reading this story Oh sure, I definitely wanted Fletcher but who wants to go back However, the pull was too great and I was just too curious Thankfully, all the stars aligned because it was wonderful Once things got going, I could not put the book down and read it in one day [...]

    6. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThe Spider is hands down my favourite Elemental Assassin book to date and, the fact that it s the tenth installment is even impressive I can count on one hand the number of authors who s ENTIRE SERIES deserves a 5 star rating and it should come as no surprise when I tell you that Jennifer Estep has earned her spot on that list because of Gin Blanco Not only has she proven that she has talent, but staying power as well I loved going back in time to re visit the Spider s tr [...]

    7. Initial Thoughts An interesting plot device whereby Gin receives some beautiful dark blue roses, which remind her of one of her first hits The story is 10 years in the past and Gin is younger and a little brash There s still a lot of details in the cooking, so have a snack ready while you read There are some nice cameos from main characters in the series before they became main characters Nicely done The Review I ve often wondered about Gin s early days and how she learned how to be one of the m [...]

    8. This was a flashback by Gin about her early days as the Spider I loved the young, cocky Finn and the banter rivalry between him and Gin And Fletcher trying to impart his wisdom on his overconfident, enthusiastic young assassin However, I found there was too many cameos to make it believable and I tire of the villains being so rotten to the core.

    9. Buddy read with the awesome assassin aficionados over atBBBand part of the MacHalo July TBR Cleanup Challenge Actual rating 2.5 stars This was the most annoying book of the series so far And most boring Because it was a flashback from ten years before in universe time I don t usually mind flashbacks and even find them fascinating It s a way to see the character s growth in the same way as comparing a character from the beginning of a series to the final personality at the end of the series But i [...]

    10. Gin Blanco is ten years older now but as she looks back at one of the defining moments in her life, we get to relive the haroing experience right along with her.The Spider is a flash from the past, giving us insight into the now 30 something Gin Blanco AKA the spider We see the younger Gin, and now understand thoroughly why she s made some of her life decisions While meeting or re meeting characters from her past that come to play pivotal or can play pivotal roles in her future.Jennifer Estep o [...]

    11. Genre Urban Fantasy Rating 4.0 MY Thoughts It all begins with a girl a stupid, arrogant girl who thought that she could do no wrong In the 10th installment of the Elemental Assassin series, Jennifer Estep takes her character, Gin Blanco aka the Spider, back in time 10 years after she receives a mysterious package of Dark Blue Roses with a note attached saying Happy Anniversary Who is the mysterious person sending Gin roses Why is Gin receiving them on this particular date and time Is this person [...]

    12. Well I got my ARC of The Spider today and I am hoping to be amazed and enthralled but as a prequel it will have to be awesome to keep those 5 Stars Well I wrote that back in Oct 2013 and was not to excited about a prequel in one of my favorite series It is mid December and I read it all day yesterday because I could hardly put it down, looks like I get to eat some comments I have made about how I hated prequels It did indeed earn those 5 Stars.This story starts and ends in the present with Gin a [...]

    13. While I am not normally a fan of the flashback type book, this one was a great entry It s not my favorite entry in the series, but it was good to see a little of young Gin and how she learned some of the lessons she needed to learn to become The Spider I ll give it a little over 4 stars, rounded up.

    14. I wish I could say that I loved this book I m a long time fan of this series, but ever since the destruction of Owen, things just haven t been the same Owen isn t my problem here, but I did have many issues Don t get me wrong, there were things I enjoyed, but I think it s time for me to accept that this series and I are just drifting apart.This is a flashback book, which was kind of disappointing off the bat After all, by its very nature, it could not advance the overall storyline What it did, i [...]

    15. Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION s Vivacious Valkyrie Marta Actual rating 4.5 SkullsThis series is Urban Fantastic at it s very best A world not unlike our own is explored, but the addition of magic and supernatural creatures adds to the fun This is a series well worth reading from the beginning, but this the 10th book is a prequel of sorts, so in many ways, a good place for new readers to start.Although the story begins in the present, the author has cleverly allowed the lead character Gin to t [...]

    16. This was my least favorite novel in the series It was a giant flashback The book got better as I went on and there was an interesting teaser with Owen It gave insight into why she is the way she is but I didn t like one particular event I look forward to reading her next one.

    17. Wow I wasn t ready for this.When I started reading The Spider and realized that it will be probably one big flashback, I was seriously disappointed, because I m not particularly fond of prequels So I just rolled my eyes, mentally prepared myself to be let down and wished that it was just a short story I could skip I dropped my expectations But as I continued reading, a strange thing happened I started enjoying this book very much really early on Things I liked about The Spider 1 FletcherI don t [...]

    18. Originally Reviewed at The Book NymphoWith The Spider being the 10th book in the Elemental Assassin series one can t help but wonder if Jennifer Estep can still bring the same outstanding writing and characters to us I m here to tell you that she can and she did You could read The Spider without having read the series because Estep takes us back 10 years to show us a young and naive Gin in the early stages of her becoming The Spider but you will miss all the little easter eggs to events and char [...]

    19. This book purports to give us the background of how Genevieve Snow earns her stripes on her path to becoming Ashland s most feared assassin The Spider In Truth, it is a book about a specific event that helped solidify Fletcher s lessons and cement them for Gin on her first solo assignment as the Spider.Since this is an e arc, I won t ruin it for you fansbut I saw similarities with her behavior in this book with her behavior in Spider s Bite, book 1 of this series I also found it interesting that [...]

    20. Who would have known Gin Blanco could be sloppy, sloppy, sloppy Well she definitely was in her younger years The Spider takes us back in time, when Gin was only 20 and still in training with Fletcher Lane I have to say I didn t have high expectation for this book I don t know why but I wasn t particularly looking forward to reading about Gin s younger years I ve been reading the books in this series back to back and was afraid The Spider would break the rhythm somehow Well, I have to say that al [...]

    21. How did Gin become the Spider How did she become such a good assassin Anyone really good at their job learns from experience and mistakes What kind of mistakes did Gin make In The Spider, it s a painful read from beginning until close to the end It s difficult because Gin is exposed as a young, arrogant and self righteous avenging angel.Ms Estep does a great job at filling in Gin s early years as she learns to be a killer It s done very well because it shows how a cocky person can fall so hard F [...]

    22. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyTHE SPIDER is the Elemental Assassin book I ve been waiting for I ll admit to being a few books behind in my reading, but this prequel installment doesn t require you to be all caught up on current events to enjoy it, or even be a reader of the series at all Full of the standard Estep drama, action and witty quips, THE SPIDER was everything I wished for and .The majority of the book probably about 95% took place in a flashback stuck between two scenes i [...]

    23. For the first time, the origins of Gin Blanco s career as the deadly assassin the Spider are revealed in full In a story that pre dates the other nine books in the series, Gin Blanco goes through her paces to become the most feared assassin in the Ashland.I did not like this story quite as much as I thought I would The villain seemed obvious to me from the very beginning It also was a little ridiculous how she just happened to run into every one she now knows Also why is it that she is such a po [...]

    24. I liked seeing Gin when she was just starting out and made lots of mistakes You never start out great you are made that way through trial and error It was nice to see Gin not so patient and rushing in and sometimes just going with her feelings on things She did learn from it and became a better assassin because of it I can understand why this one wasn t liked very much it was kind of slow to get through for me as well but I still enjoyed it nevertheless Owen is also in of Gin s past then we kno [...]

    25. The day the box came started out like any other.Gin receives a very nondescript box at the Pork Pit that contains blue roses and a card that says Happy Anniversary This leads her to tell Owen a tale about her early years as an assassin.This book goes back ten years in Gin s life and show that even as the Spider she can make mistakes Fletcher has received a hit that makes him uneasy Gin reads into it what she wants and is gung ho to complete the contract Unfortunately, Gin makes a huge mistake in [...]

    26. I expect that Ms Estep had much fun throwing every character and major location Gin has visited from Gin s recent past and present into this one story from her not so recent past.Many of Gin s friends, arch rivals, and close family members made appearances in this very intimate story of Gin s complex history as the assassin and how it shaped her into the person we know her to be At least, who she was until she re met some key characters who brought out her inner self and reawakened the human ins [...]

    27. In The Spider, Gin receives a package that sends readers a decade into her past Ten years ago Gin was a different person She was arrogant and less cautious with her life and her heart Her mentor and foster father Fletcher presents a job where the target is the owner of a construction company with shady practices and a recent project that collapsed and killed innocent people Despite Fletcher s misgivings, Gin takes the job and after a few hiccups, completes her work and experiences a bit of happ [...]

    28. This series is Urban Fantastic at it s very best A world not unlike our own is explored but the addition of magic and supernatural creatures adds to the fun This is a series well worth reading from the beginning but this the tenth book is a prequel of sorts so in many ways a good place for new readers to start Although the story begins in the present the author has cleverly allowed the lead character Gin to take a trip down memory lane and what an intriguing journey it is.Gin is an assassin whom [...]
